Notes

- most tracks have been pitch corrected
- gain boosted in right channel by varying amounts to make the sound more central
- the tape was paused on a number of occasions betweeen tracks, crossfaded have been put in
- d1t01, the first 9:14 have been patched in. The sound is muffled from 9:14 until 11:36 and then improves from there on.
- d2t04, the left channel completely dropped out for the last 30 seconds. To preserve the ambience of the audince
recording the left channel of the patch source and the right channel of this recording have been matrixed to form a
new left channel and patched in. It works better than just using the soundboard source.
- d2t05, the left channel completely dropped out for the first 9:45. The same method, as for d2t04, was used to create a
new left channel. The remainder of this track was completely missing and has been patched in
- d3t01, first 3:47 was missing and has been patched in. The next 17 seconds had a complete dropout in the left channel,
The same method, as for d2t04, was used to create a new left channel

patch source: SBD -> Master Reel -> PCM -> Dat (44.1k) shnid 87782

-* d2t01 and d2t02 are from different sources to the rest of the show
- Disc 2 requires an overburn

Comments:

- This is a stealth recording and although the balance between channels is somewhat variable, the sound is very good
